VIDIN – The Medieval Fortresses ”Baba Vida”

Vidin is the westernmost important Bulgarian Danube Port and is situated on one of the southernmost sections of the river. A Ferryboat complex linking Vidin with Calafat on the opposite side of the river, is located 2 km from the town. The complex is to be replaced by the Calafat-Vidin Bridge.

Vidin boasts two well-preserved Medieval Fortresses - Baba Vida and Kaleto, as well as many old Orthodox churches such as St Pantaleimon, St Petka (both 17th century), and St Greatmartyr Demetrius (19th century), a Jewish synagogue (1894), a mosque and a library of Osman Pazvantoğlu, the late 18th century Turkish ruler of northwestern Bulgaria, the cruciform barracks of 1798, and a number of old Renaissance buildings.

Чудесна перспектива. (От Сливен във Видин, не са ти основателни твърденията, че аз много миткам...)

Аaa, не съм казала, че не обичам да миткам, напротив, даже много.. ;-)))

Поздрави, Мими
